Friday Roundup

Well, I've survived another chaotic week at work and am looking forward to a fun-filled weekend with a Bee Blessed gathering tomorrow afternoon, a friend from London visiting, and a low-key birthday dinner on Saturday with a few friends. I managed to get a bit of EPP done in the evenings this week but not much else. Nevertheless, here are a few snapshots (literally) of some of the cooler aspects of my week...

Hubby got me these super cute Converse earrings for my birthday yesterday.... for some reason, they make me want to sing 'These boots were made for walking'! 

Also yesterday, I started the second installment of Cake School. To explain: last Christmas, hubby bought me the gift that keeps on giving... enrollment in a baking class at the local community college! I had been saying that I really wanted to learn how to decorate cakes a little bit better, so he registered me for what he thought was a decorating class. It turned out to be a more traditional baking class, but I had a blast, met some great people, and am now routinely being asked by hubby's colleagues when I might send in some more baked goods! So, this semester, a couple of the friends I met in Cake School 1 and I registered for Sugarcraft, and we had our first class last night.... 

Obviously, I shall soon be entering The Great British Bake-Off! It was pretty hard work, but I imagine it gets easier with practice. Total frustration when a few of the flowers I had labored over so assiduously broke later in the evening, but c'est la vie!

And finally, I managed to get my charms for the Japanese charm swap cut and ready to post...

56 plus one extra just in case... can't wait to get my package of charm squares in the post!

Have a great weekend! 



  1. My best friend learned all about cake decorating and does it professionally now. Each time she comes to visit she brings stuff and teaches my girls new tricks. It is such fun!
